Vegan Vicky Sponge
This is my Mum’s tried and tested vegan sponge. Very moist, nice and light, and you can decorate it how you like!
75g vegan butter
70g caster sugar
3tbsp smooth apricot jam
150g vanilla soya yogurt
175g self-raising flour
2tsp baking powder
Cream together butter and sugar.
Add jam and yogurt.
Mix in flour and baking powder.
Cook for 50 minutes 160°C/140°C.
Vegan Sweet Potato Brownies
Don’t worry – these brownies are fudgy, gooey and don’t taste like a root vegetable!
To make 16 chocolate-y squares, you’ll need:
400g sweet potato
140g dark chocolate
80g coconut oil
100g self-raising flour
160g caster sugar
a pinch of salt
Boil the sweet potato until it’s soft, then mash together.
Melt the chocolate and coconut oil, then pour into the mash.
Add the flour, sugar and salt, and mix together.
Pour into a lined baking tray and bake at 180°C for 40 minutes.
I also like adding more chocolate, fruit or nuts into the mixture!
